This is a museum quality rarity. What an exceptional piece! This is a gilt silver music box in the shape of a harp. Set in the frame are aventurine jewels and pearls. It has a footed base with figural dolphins and overall a very heavy raised silver rococo design. The entire piece is set with aventurine and pearls. On the top is a detailed female figure that appears to be Diana The Huntress. The music box itself plays perfectly. It winds and then you pull out one of the floral caps on the base and it plays. To stop it you simply push the same cap in. This is in excellent condition with only one wire on the harp missing that could easily be replaced. Although I can find no markings on the piece, it is my opinion that this would be Austrian in origin and Circa 1900. It measures 8 inches to the top of the figure and 4 inches at the widest part of the harp. This is one of the most beautiful silver music boxes that I have encountered in my entire career in the antique business. A unique work of art that only increase in value with the passage of time.
